The Polar Express train ride offered by the Nevada Northern Railway is the genuine Polar Express, licensed by Warner Bros., and following both the book and the movie. It is a magical journey to the North Pole for the young and young at heart. The Polar Express includes a reading of the beloved story, music from the movie soundtrack, and servers, bedecked in white chef's attire, offering hot chocolate and cookies to everyone aboard the train. The highlight of the trip is, of course, a visit from Santa Claus, greeting all passengers and providing each with a silver bell. Don't forget your camera! Pajamas and blankets encouraged for all. The trains are comfortably heated.
